The younger sister of convicted Charleston church shooter Dylann Roof appeared in court Monday and had one of the charges against her dropped.
Morgan Roof had the marijuana possession charge she was facing dropped by Richland County prosecutors, who are still charging the A.C. Flora High School student with carrying weapons on school grounds, charlestoncitypaper.com reported.
Morgan Roof, 18, was arrested March 15 when she was charged with simple possession of marijuana and two counts of carrying weapons on school grounds, according to the Richland County Sheriff’s Department.
No reason was given to the public for dropping the drug charge, according to postandcourier.com, which said she was accompanied by two attorneys but did not speak during the court appearance.
When she was arrested, Morgan Roof was in possession of pepper spray and a knife, according to the sheriff’s department.
The day prior to her arrest, Morgan Roof made a social media post on Snapchat which alarmed the student body, where she said she hoped the students participating in the National Walkout Day, protesting gun violence, would “get shot.”
